Cauliflower: A Secret Superfood

While we may not always think about it, cauliflower is an excellent addition to our diets to help keep us healthy. Not only is cauliflower high in antioxidants that protect our cells from free radicals and help to reduce inflammation, it is also high in essential nutrients that help fuel our bodies. In cauliflower we find nutrients, like sulforaphane and choline, that help reduce our risk of developing diseases and support our metabolism.
